    even if they enrage the xenophobes.  At Obama's inauguration, a Stars and Stripes made in Belgium?.

    My Uncle Skeets, who died this day in the Battle of the Bulge "clean up" in 1945 at the age of 20 is buried in Ardennes Cemetery in Belgium.  I've been there twice -- the second time for a Memorial Day where more Belgians (including WWII Belgian Vets Honor Guard) showed up in the rain than I've ever seen in the U.S. for a Memorial Day remembrance.

    Thank you to our brothers and sisters in Belgium.  Please get along -- you are diverse but lovely people.
